“Yes, 100 percent yes,” Showalter told Andy Cohen on last night's “Watch What Happens Live” (of all places) in regards to a sequel to the movie. You may now commence celebrations.
He continued, "The whole gang, everyone's doing it." Despite his quasi-sarcastic tone, we have plenty of other reasons that what he's saying is legit. Last June, David Wain told Vulture that the sequel, if it happened, would be set in the same summer the original film was set in (1981) and would have to feature "40-year-olds playing 16-year-olds." Just a few weeks ago, most of the original cast reunited for a reading of the movie's script for the radio.
Will "Wet Hot" go the way of "Arrested Development" and announce plans for a movie short after their reunion? This super-fan can only hope that the "Wet Hot American Summer reunion of your dreams" is about to become a reality.
